I wanted to mention that the link for Bill Ward's article on butterfly gardening doesn't seem to work. Not sure if this is the same one, but I'll post it. We're going to miss Bill Ward and all his many writings. He passed away last winter.

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White

Thanks Linda, not sure if that was it or not. Looking over there site it seems they did a little rearranging. I'll go through all those links later and correct or delete the bad ones.

The link in the first section for PDF files does not work. I would like to see the section on vines.
Thanks,

I only found two that didn't work, the first one "Houston Chapter of Native Plant Society of Texas native plant information pages", I was able to fix, the other one about native plant resources is no longer there so I deleted it.
